JERICHO, August 28, 2012 – Israeli forces Tuesday handed two Palestinians from sbaiha area, in Jericho city, notices to demolish their houses, as well as demolished the stone walls surrounding four other houses in the area, according to WAFA correspondent.
The governor of Jericho and the Jordan Valley, Majid al-Fityani, said Israeli forces, ten days ago, notified the residents of their plans to raze about 3000 dunums of land planted with palm trees.
He considered these Israeli measures an escalation of the Israeli occupation policy against the residents of the Jordan Valley in an attempt to force the residents to leave their land in order to seize it.
